WOW ! If she can get a good car under her, she may be knocking off some of the TOP DOGS

You have any idea what kind of lights shes cutting? I know they (the team) are not interested in her lights just yet.. but to run those #s are awesome...

She was killer on the lights as well. We got to sit right on the starting line and watch every ET slip come out of the printer, and her best pass was a 4.12 light. I kept the sceond copy of everyones runs . if i can figure how to post them i will

And the hardcore firebird was there , beautiful car, He only made one desent pass on tuesdaY. He ran 8.61 at 154 mph. car sounded like it layed down a little on top end. around JAN . 8 they invade BRADENTON again for a week and there will be twice as many.

A friend of mine called me from the track...she lost it and rolled at about the 1000' mark...the owner was at the starting line and said "that's NOT what I am looking for"...the rear end swung to the right, she got out of it, corrected, and then it swung to the left and rolled...

Jeggy finally got one pass to completion...ran a 7.75....Greg Anderson had a 6.69 on one pass...V. Gaines had to be pushed back off the line 3 times in a row...Emily Lewis was there hangin' with Dave Connelly's GF...

Erica has the potential to make a name this coming season....I feel for her, but she will get through it and be better & wiser. Emily had the same thing happen last year.

My buddy told me an older guy, dressed very well, was at the starting line and was pissed when she rolled...he thought it was the owner by his comment...
